VANCOUVER – Creation Technologies today announced the acquisition of Aisling Industries, a privately held EMS company with sites in Mexico.

The deal gives Creation, a Top 25 worldwide contract electronics manufacturer, its first footprint in Mexico.

Aisling, which has operations in Mexicali, Mexico and El Centro, CA, was founded in 1982 by Michael Logue. It employs more than 200 workers.

Creation, which has 12 manufacturing facilities and two design centers in Canada, the US and China, said the move was made to accommodate customers that wanted to build product in Mexico.

"Expanding our footprint into Mexico has been a strategic priority for some time now,” said Creation president and chief executive Arthur Tymos. “This acquisition allows us to offer ‘right-shore’ manufacturing to OEMs selling complex products into North American end-markets."

“Though we have offered an Asian manufacturing alternative since 2008, certain of our customers have also requested a low-cost North American solution.  We see Mexicali as an ideal location."

The Aisling manufacturing facility, now renamed Creation Technologies – Mexicali, will be relocated to a new 125,000 sq. ft. facility later this year.

Aisling focuses in the industrial, medical, defense and automotive markets. Customers include Newport Medical, Siemens, Brooks and Tyco.

Aisling vice president Sergio Quiroz has been named general manager.

Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
